UN Stamps by Theme

  1. 1. United Nations Stamps By Theme from the Uncle Bing Collection
  2. 2. Intro There are many fine stamp designs in any one country’s catalog. The United Nations’ philatelic department, though, has its pick of the world’s best artists and designers. It does not have to deal as much with the political pressure of commemorating celebrities, the poultry industry, or this year’s dictator.
  3. 3. In 2014, my Uncle Bing revived my childhood love of philately when he gave me his own UN-heavy stamp collection. “See what you can do with this,” is all he asked in return. Showing the visitors the wide variety of United Nations stamp designs is my attempt to honor his wish.
